Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has introduced Alchemy of Sleep, a global collection of new and immersive retreats designed to promote rest through sleep-inducing treatments, movement-driven activities and special amenities.
Taking a holistic approach to sleep, the Alchemy of Sleep retreats address a variety of practices that require attention, such as nutrition, movement and mindfulness, presenting a mix of treatments and experiences, expert consultations and classes that ensure each guest finds skills to incorporate into their everyday lives. Guests can opt for a one-night ”’Dreamscape” or extend from two to five nights for a “Sleep Transformation,” providing an even more immersive stay. As a supplement to these offerings, Curated Sleep Boxes feature products that rebalance such as essential oil blends, tea blends, aromatherapy linen mists and silk eye masks.
In keeping with Rosewood’s A Sense of Place philosophy, wherein the identity and offerings of each property are inspired by its destination, the Alchemy of Sleep retreats reflect local wellness customs and embrace the unique natural surroundings, according to the company.
“While the return to an on-the-go lifestyle is in sight for 2022, taking time for true rest and reset is essential for ensuring good health at every level,” said Emmanuel Arroyo, regional director, wellness, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “We designed our Alchemy of Sleep experiences to provide guests with the tools they need for slowing down and establishing lasting sleep hygiene habits, which will have a greater impact on their overall well-being.”
Available from January through March, retreat elements at participating Rosewood properties are:
